Sandbag Exercise: 2-Hand Pinch Grip Upright Row
October 15, 2014 Updated May 15, 2020
The Sandbag Pinch Grip Upright Row helps develop grip strength as well as scapular stability. The goal of the drill is to lift the elbows high as the shoulders stay down and back.
Step 1: Stand with your feet hip width apart and a light loaded sandbag across your body in an overhand pinch grip.
Step 2: Keeping your back neutral to slightly extended, pull the sandbag to chin level raising the elbows up and out.
Step 3: Maintaining a strong core, return back to starting position.
Tips & Safety:
Avoid slouching forward at any time during this drill. The focus
is keeping the shoulders retracted and packed through the entire range of motion.
